Hidden in an old Maison du maitre near Flagey, this Italian has excellent food (small menu) and wine, friendly owners/staff and a quirky, bohemian atmosphere.

Decent food, but does not deliver neither on expectations nor on money. Additionally there is no beer, as apparently Italians do not drink it.

Wonderful place, cozy and friendly atmosphere in a small Italian restaurant. Ideal for friends and family. Menu changes regularly and plates are delicious with fresh products prepared in an open space kitchen. In one word: you feel like at home. Will be back very soon.

Warm cozy place. Fresh and genuine food. Excellent Italian restaurant in an unconventional place. I adored the carciofi alla romana...

Took a vegetable spaghetti - olives were so bitter in the dish that I still felt their taste for two hours after dinner... average coffee from Bialletti pot.. terrace looked nice, but due to a crapy weather we stayed inside... overall: expensive and not worth...it.More

Alessio is a magician in the kitchen and his restaurant is a cozy place, where anyone can feel at home. #foodporn

Service was good, its not a fast food place so be aware you have to wait your turn, You go into the old building like going into the basement of someone's house then you turn left into the restaurant. The greeting is friendly and polite,...the whole atmosphere is relaxed and as the title says quirky. Beyond that the emphasis is on Italian food, 21 C style Italian food I would call it. I liked the atmosphere, and food and I really don't have specific critiques although perhaps one or two more vegan or vegetarian options would be a plus.More

Loved the fact that you enter this restaurant like entering someone’s home - it’s a buzzer on the door panel outside and a small label. Once inside the atmosphere is very welcoming and the menu short and interesting. The service was very helpful and friendly....The food was good - not great - but perfectly lovely given the overall positive ambience of the place.More
